Following years of pressure from female national football players, the US men’s and women’s national soccer teams will receive equal pay under a “historic” agreement announced by the US Soccer Federation on Wednesday, May 18.

The move makes the US Soccer Federation the first in the world to equalize World Cup prize money awarded to men’s and women’s teams, it said.

US Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone said: “This is a truly historic moment. These agreements have changed the game forever here in the United States and have the potential to change the game around the world.”
